We investigate whether the neural correlates of the continuity illusion, as measured using fMRI, are modulated by attention. As we have shown previously, when two formants of a synthetic vowel are presented in an alternating pattern, the vowel can be identified if the gaps in each formant are filled with bursts of plausible masking noise, causing the illusory percept of a continuous vowel ("Illusion" condition). When the formant-to-noise ratio is increased so that noise no longer plausibly masks the formants, the formants are heard as interrupted ("Illusion Break" condition) and vowels are not identifiable. A region of the left middle temporal gyrus (MTG) is sensitive both to intact synthetic vowels (two formants present simultaneously) and to Illusion stimuli, compared to Illusion Break stimuli. Here, we compared these conditions in the presence and absence of attention. We examined fMRI signal for different sound types under three attentional conditions: full attention to the vowels; attention ...
Recent work has shown that pictorial illusions have a greater effect on perceptual judgements than they do on the visual control of actions, such as object-directed grasping. This dissociation between vision for perception and vision for action is thought to reflect the operation of two separate streams of visual processing in the brain. Glover and Dixon claim, however, that perceptual illusions can influence the control of grasping but that these effects are evident only at early stages of the movement. By the time the action nears its completion any effect of illusions disappears. Glover and Dixon suggest that these results are consistent with what they call a planning and control model of action, in which actions are planned using a context-dependent visual representation but are monitored and corrected online using a context-independent representation. We reanalysed data from an earlier experiment on grasping in the Ebbinghaus illusion in which we showed that maximum grip aperture was ...
Germine, L., Benson, T. L., Cohen, F., & Hooker, C. I. (2013). Psychosis-proneness and the rubber hand illusion of body ownership. Psychiatry Res , 207, 45-52.
Our understanding of body ownership largely relies on the so-called Rubber Hand Illusion (RHI). In this paradigm, synchronous stroking of the real and the rubber hands leads to an illusion of ownership of the rubber hand provided that it is physically, anatomically, and spatially plausible. Self-attribution of an artificial hand also occurs during visuomotor synchrony. In particular, participants experience ownership over a virtual or a rubber hand when the visual feedback of self-initiated movements follows the trajectory of the instantiated motor commands, such as in the Virtual Hand Illusion (VHI) or the moving Rubber Hand Illusion (mRHI). Evidence yields that both when the cues are triggered externally (RHI) and when they result from voluntary actions (VHI and mRHI), the experience of ownership is established through bottom-up integration and top-down prediction of proximodistal cues (visuotactile or visuomotor) within the peripersonal space. It seems, however, that depending on whether the sensory

In an attempt to assess the importance of gaze stability, in previous work (Zanker, Doyle, & Walker, 2003) we compared measurements of participants eye movements made while looking at stimuli inspired by Bridget Rileys Fall with the occurrence of illusory motion percepts. This type of stimulus differs from Enigma in that it is composed purely from periodic line patterns, without any superimposed regions of homogeneous color, and consequently the generated motion illusion is restricted to the jazzing and shimmering sensation similar to that seen for the radial line patterns. By contrast, the streaming inside the regions of different color experienced in Enigma is absent-and in this sense Riley stimuli are simpler and therefore provide a useful tool to constrain the investigation of motion illusions in static patterns to a single phenomenon. This difference is particularly relevant because there are indications that the streaming sensation is preserved when the retinal image is ...

Participants usually respond faster to larger objects as compared to smaller objects. In order to perceive an objects size, the brain needs to integrate contextual information such as object distance, an effect elucidated by various visual illusions. Accordingly, the perceived size of identical objects can differentially be altered via depth cues that create differentially perceived object distances. Recently, it has been demonstrated that simple reaction times are modulated by the perceived rather than by the retinal size of an object. This indicates that responses are generated subsequent to distance and retinal size integration. However, the timing aspects of these integration processes are largely unclear. Therefore, the present study investigated the influence of stimulus duration on size - distance integration by means of a simple reaction time paradigm. In two experiments we verified the effect that reaction times are susceptible to a variant of the well known Ponzo illusion. In the ...

A study using a procedure called the rubber hand illusion has found striking new evidence that people experiencing schizophrenia have a weakened sense of body ownership and has produced the first case of a spontaneous, out-of-body experience in the laboratory.. These findings suggest that movement therapy, which trains people to be focused and centered on their own bodies, including some forms of yoga and dance, could be helpful for many of the 2.2 million people in the United States who suffer from this mental disorder.. The study, which appears in the Oct. 31 issue of the scientific journal Public Library of Science One, measured the strength of body ownership of 24 schizophrenia patients and 21 matched control subjects by testing their susceptibility to the "rubber hand illusion" or RHI. This tactile illusion, which was discovered in 1998, is induced by simultaneously stroking a visible rubber hand and the subjects hidden hand. ...
It may be fun to perceive illusions, but the understanding of how they work is even more stimulating and sustainable: They can tell us where the limits and capacity of our perceptual apparatus are found-they can specify how the constraints of perception are set. Furthermore, they let us analyze the cognitive sub-processes underlying our perception. Illusions in a scientific context are not mainly created to reveal the failures of our perception or the dysfunctions of our apparatus, but instead point to the specific power of human perception. The main task of human perception is to amplify and strengthen sensory inputs to be able to perceive, orientate and act very quickly, specifically and efficiently. The present paper strengthens this line of argument, strongly put forth by perceptual pioneer Richard L. Gregory (e.g., Gregory, 2009), by discussing specific visual illusions and how they can help us to understand the magic of perception.
The Ternus illusion, also commonly referred to as the Ternus Effect is an illusion related to human visual perception involving apparent motion. In a simplified explanation of one form of the illusion, two discs, (referred to here as L for left and C for centre) are shown side by side as the first frame in a sequence of three frames. Next a blank frame is presented for a very short, variable duration. In the final frame, two similar discs (C for centre and R for right) are then shown in a shifted position. Depending on various factors including the time intervals between frames as well as spacing and layout, observers perceive either element motion, in which L appears to move to R while C remains stationary or they report experiencing group motion, in which L and C appear to move together to C and R. Both element motion and group motion can be observed in animated examples to the right in Figures 1 and 2. In 1926 and then again in 1938, the Gestalt psychologist Joseph Ternus observed and defined ...
Out of the body" tactile illusion refers to the phenomenon in which one can perceive tactility as if emanating from a location external to the body without any stimulator present there. Taking advantage of such a tactile illusion is one way to provide and realize richer interaction feedback without employing and placing actuators directly at all stimulation target points. However, to further explore its potential, it is important to better understand the underlying physiological and neural mechanism. As such, we measured the brain wave patterns during such tactile illusion and mapped out the corresponding brain activation areas. Participants were given stimulations at different levels with the intention to create veridical (i.e., non-illusory) and phantom sensations at different locations along an external hand-held virtual ruler. The experimental data and analysis indicate that both veridical and illusory sensations involve, among others, the parietal lobe, one of the most important components ...

The clustering illusion is the tendency to erroneously consider the inevitable "streaks" or "clusters" arising in small samples from random distributions to be non-random. The illusion is caused by a human tendency to underpredict the amount of variability likely to appear in a small sample of random or semi-random data. Thomas Gilovich, an early author on the subject, argued that the effect occurs for different types of random dispersions, including two-dimensional data such as clusters in the locations of impact of World War II V-1 flying bombs on maps of London; or seeing patterns in stock market price fluctuations over time. Although Londoners developed specific theories about the pattern of impacts within London, a statistical analysis by R. D. Clarke originally published in 1946 showed that the impacts of V-2 rockets on London were a close fit to a random distribution. The clustering illusion is central to the "hot hand fallacy", the first study of which was reported by Gilovich, Robert ...
Downloadable (with restrictions)! This paper studies corrective strategies for the illusion of delayed incentives (Soman, 1998), the phenomena that money-for-effort transactions that are unattractive in the present appear attractive when they are in the future. This illusion occurs because future effort is discounted more heavily than future monetary outcomes. In this research, we show that this bias of differential discounting can be corrected by asking consumers to perform effort at the time of decision-making. We further outline three explanations for why this intervention attenuates the illusion of delayed incentives, and discuss whether these explanations constitute a debiasing effect or a rebiasing effect (Larrick, 2004). We report the results of two laboratory experiments and discuss theoretical and practical implications of our findings.

For its 75th Anniversary, Rialto Pictures presents a stunning 4K restoration of GRAND ILLUSION, Jean Renoirs powerful and eloquent anti-war film set during World War I. Aristocratic Captain de Boeldieu and his mechanic, Lieutenant Maréchal are shot down by Captain von Rauffenstein, who treats them with customary officers hospitality. The two downed pilots are then sent to a German POW camp, where they quickly join a group of prisoners who have concocted an elaborate escape plan. Their plot is foiled, however, as they are transferred to a new camp, the formidable Wintersborn fortress, run by Rauffenstein, who is now grounded due to battle wounds. Rauffenstein, lamenting the end of an aristocratic era, tries to befriend de Boeldieu, but the French captain is already hatching a new escape plan - one in which he puts himself in danger to allow the others to escape. GRAND ILLUSION was the first foreign film to receive a Best Picture Oscar nomination ...

In this piece we will consider the work of Maurice Merleau-Ponty as it relates to critical psychology & also discuss the possibility of its use as a theoretical framework for empirical studies. We will focus specifically on Merleau-Pontys concepts of perception & embodiment & ask what these may add to perspectives within critical psychology. In terms of these concepts, Merleau-Ponty offers a radically different view of perception from that which is common in mainstream psychology, along with a radically different view of human embodiment. Given this, we believe that many of his ideas are important for critical psychology & could give it an alternative direction. Phenomenological perspectives are also of use in critical, empirical studies, & here we use the concepts of perception & embodiment to reassess the literature on anorexia nervosa. It is our contention that these concepts allow us to rethink the embodied nature of anorexia, particularly in terms of the way that the body is conceptualised ...

This book is a comparative study exploring the writings of an Indian Christian theologian named Ayadurai Jesudason Appasamy (1891-1975) and his comparative theological interaction with the twelfth-century Śrivaiṣṇava reformer, Rāmānuja. The doctrinal focus is Appasamys four-fold Johannine application of the Body of God analogy-the Universe, Incarnation, Eucharist, and Church being his four divine embodiments. Critics in Appasamys day described his theological project as bold heresies, a synthesis of Christianity and Vedānta that has shifted the axis from Christianity to Hindu religion. By reading Appasamy in the context of his devotional tradition, however, this study demonstrates that his application of the embodiment analogy is rooted, rather, in the sacramental theology of early twentieth-century Anglicanism. His embodiment theology, in fact, closely reflects the theological developments that took place in Anglican scholarship between the time of Charles Gore and William

A method of enhanced atomic layer deposition is described. In an embodiment, the enhancement is the use of plasma. Plasma begins prior to flowing a second precursor into the chamber. The second precursor reacts with a prior precursor to deposit a layer on the substrate. In an embodiment, the layer includes at least one element from each of the first and second precursors. In an embodiment, the layer is TaN. In an embodiment, the precursors are TaF5 and NH3. In an embodiment, the plasma begins during the purge gas flow between the pulse of first precursor and the pulse of second precursor. In an embodiment, the enhancement is thermal energy. In an embodiment, the thermal energy is greater than generally accepted for ALD (|300 degrees Celsius). The enhancement assists the reaction of the precursors to deposit a layer on a substrate.
In 2010, I worked up a post on what I dubbed The Spelunker Illusion (see also the last endnote of my 2011 book). Now, hot off the press at Psychological Science, Kevin Dieter and colleagues offer empirical confirmation.. The Spelunker Illusion, well-known among cave explorers, is this: In absolute darkness, you wave your hand before your eyes. Many people report seeing the motion of the hand, despite the absolute darkness. If a friend waves her hand in front of your face, you dont see it.. I see three possible explanations:. (1.) The brains motor output and your own proprioceptive input create hints of visual experience of hand motion.. (2.) Since you know you are moving your hand, you interpret low-level sensory noise in conformity with your knowledge that your hand is in such-and-such a place, moving in such-and-such a way, much as you might see a meaningful shape in a random splash of line segments.. (3.) There is no visual experience of motion at all, but you mistakenly think there is such ...

Even if you believe vaccines are safe, Dissolving Illusions should make it crystal clear that they are not necessary. If they are not necessary, why do our children receive more than four dozen by the time they go to school?. There are only so many possible explanations. I suppose some doctors still believe in them. After all, theyve been indoctrinated since they first set foot in medical school. Big Pharma is a powerful-not to mention rich-force. And I guess its possible that the FDA, CDC, and other agencies believe the "studies" they see quoted. After all, the statistics are skewed to say whatever the authors want them to say. Its also possible that some doctors dont believe in vaccines and dont vaccinate their own children but keep quiet.. How many times have you heard your doctor say, "Vaccines prevent horrible diseases and sometimes death?"

BACKGROUND: Patients with asomatognosia generally describe parts of their body as missing or disappeared from corporeal awareness. This disturbance is generally attributed to damage in the right posterior parietal cortex. However, recent neuroimaging and electrophysiological studies suggest that corporeal awareness and embodiment of body parts are instead linked to the premotor cortex of both hemispheres. PATIENT: We describe a patient with asomatognosia of her left arm due to damage in the right premotor and motor cortices. The patients pathological embodiment for her left arm was associated with mild left somatosensory loss, mild frontal dysfunction, and a behavioral deficit in the mental imagery of human arms. CONCLUSION: Asomatognosia may also be associated with damage to the right premotor cortex.. ...

Altering the normal association between touch and its visual correlate can result in the illusory perception of a fake limb as part of our own body. Thus, when touch is seen to be applied to a rubber hand while felt synchronously on the corresponding hidden real hand, an illusion of ownership of the rubber hand usually occurs. The illusion has also been demonstrated using visuomotor correlation between the movements of the hidden real hand and the seen fake hand. This type of paradigm has been used with respect to the whole body generating out-of-the-body and body substitution illusions. However, such studies have only ever manipulated a single factor and although they used a form of virtual reality have not exploited the power of immersive virtual reality (IVR) to produce radical transformations in body ownership. Here we show that a first person perspective of a life-sized virtual human female body that appears to substitute the male subjects own bodies was sufficient to generate a body ...

In a new theory about the construction of Stonehenge, an archeologist argues that ancient builders wanted to re-create an auditory illusion.
Before the scanning sessions, a subset of participants took part in a behavioral experiment aimed at obtaining subjective and objective measures of the illusion in the same setup that would later be used in the scanner. The participants lay supine with their right hand placed on the right side of the table, in the same position (HR) as that used in experiment 1 (see above). A white cloth was used to hide the hand from the participants sight. A gender-matched, realistic-looking rubber hand was placed on the table in a position equivalent to location HL in experiment 1 (see above). The distance between the middle fingers of the two hands was 22 cm. The rubber hand was rotated ∼45° with respect to the real hand (matching the rotation of the arm when the hand was placed on the left in experiment 1). Thus, the rubber hand was placed in an anatomically plausible position, which is necessary to induce the rubber hand illusion (Ehrsson et al., 2004; Tsakiris and Haggard, 2005). This setup allowed ...
Barack - Grand Magician. World War Real - Part I. And from Misinformation onto Illusion…. Think on this - Illusion. Ultimately, much of what we understand to be "information," may, in fact, be misinformation. Information creates our own personal illusions about reality. These illusions may be personal or social. And, naturally, personal understanding affects an individuals social understanding. Much like the North versus South conflict previously discussed, the conflict itself acts as a misinformation indicator. The most heated conflicts in human interaction have political and/or religious roots.. First, lets explore events of mass illusion. The year was 1979, and Joe Newman presented free energy to the world with his latest "energy machine" design. Scientists scoffed while he quickly gained popularity and reached stardom. Despite all of the sophisticated reason scientists threw at it, people cheered Newman on. People simply wanted to believe - and, well, they did. Joe represented a symbol ...

1 There is a way of living in the world that is not here, although it seems to be. You do not change appearance, though you smile more frequently. Your forehead is serene; your eyes are quiet. And the ones who walk the world as you do recognize their own. Yet those who have not yet perceived the way will recognize you also, and believe that you are like them, as you were before.. 2 The world is an illusion. Those who choose to come to it are seeking for a place where they can be illusions, and avoid their own reality. Yet when they find their own reality is even here, then they step back and let it lead the way. What other choice is really theirs to make? To let illusions walk ahead of truth is madness. But to let illusion sink behind the truth and let the truth stand forth as what it is, is merely sanity.. 3 This is the simple choice we make today. The mad illusion will remain awhile in evidence, for those to look upon who chose to come, and have not yet rejoiced to find they were mistaken in ...
The hand in particular is susceptible to illusion as a result of its high density of sensory nerve endings and its integration into your environment and projects. For example, if you take two boxes of different sizes and put a brick in each so that they weight approximately the same, pretty well anyone you ask to gauge the respective weights will tell you the bigger box is heavier. This of course has important implications for prosthesis as the grip and lift effort will be primed to be greater for the perceived heavier object. Assuming some integration between body and prosthesis the effect could be to crush a delicate object. Perceptual confusion isnt limited to visual integration, it can also occur when auditory signals get distorted as in the example of writing on a blackboard with a chalk, then doing the same exercise but wearing ear-plugs this time. Because the ear-plugs dampen the high frequency sound the effect is to perceive the blackboard as smoother, this is also known as the ...

Various embodiments of the present invention are directed to equalizing pressure in a reservoir containing fluidic media, possibly due to imperfect installation of the reservoir or an external influence such as an altitude or a temperature change. In various embodiments, fluidic media may be expelled from the reservoir through a needle and contained in an interior volume of a pierceable member before the needle pierces the pierceable member to establish a flow path to a user. In other embodiments, fluidic media may be expelled through a port of the reservoir into a chamber. In further embodiments, fluidic media may be expelled through a channel in a plunger head and out a passage in the reservoir when the channel and passage are aligned. In other embodiments, fluidic media may be expelled through a valve, and the valve may be pierceable by a needle to establish a flow path to the user.
A patients body temperature is regulated by using an enclosure to enclose a portion of the patients body in an isolated environment. In accordance with one embodiment, the patients entire body below his head is enclosed. Once enclosed, the patient is surrounded by heated vapor that is injected into the enclosure. The heated vapor condenses on the patients skin to warm the patient quickly, efficiently and safely. This embodiment is well suited for the treatment of hypothermia patients. In accordance with alternative embodiments, only a portion of the patients head is enclosed. In these embodiments, an enclosure is placed on the patients head, and heated vapor is fed into the enclosure. Excess air and vapor are preferably dissipated by vents in the cap, whereas excess condensate is preferably absorbed by an absorbent layer provided in the cap. These embodiments are well suited for regulating a patients body temperature in a surgical setting. Tympanic temperature is monitored and thus vapor dew
In this study, international and national assistant referees (ARs) were tested on offside decision-making accuracy and accuracy of memory. Eye movements were tracked during the observation of video clips and frozen frames. The international ARs clearly performed better than the national ARs for response accuracy on the video clips, but not for the frame recognition. Interestingly, for the incorrect responses, the international ARs chose more frames behind the offside line, and the national ARs more frames ahead. The eye movement data only revealed a significant longer observation length on the frames for the international ARs. These observations lead us to believe that international ARs used a strategy of compensation for the forward displacement of the attacker induced by the flash-lag effect. Future research should focus on the awareness of the perceptual illusion and the compensation strategy of the ARs ...
The original paper by Gregory and Heard provides a thorough treatment of the way in which this illusion arises. It is based primarily on a concept called border locking that involves edge detection in the context of simultaneous spatial and colour registration in the human visual system. You may also be interested in a somewhat simpler (and therefore modestly less accurate) explanation. If you look at the boundary between two dark tiles (in the default configuration), the mortar line is plainly evident. At the boundary between two light tiles it can also be seen clearly. At the boundary between a light and dark tile, however, your visual acuity simply isnt sharp enough to resolve the mortar line as a separate object. Nevertheless, it still occupies some space on the screen and your brain must somehow interpret that ``missing space. It therefore simply interprets the mortar as part of the tile above or below it (depending on which one is nearest the center of your field of view). When you look ...
An older photograph or a sketch merged over a current scene When you turn the photos orientation to create the gravity illusion, remember that a straight horizon is very important so that you dont shatter the illusion. Also, pay attention to the subjects clothing and hair positioning. Hair and fabric that hangs differently than the apparent reality of the photo will quickly shatter the illusion. For example, the example photo has clothes hanging wrong for orientation, extra items in the background, and a crooked horizon that all spoil the illusion of this photo. How to take a gravity defying image Once you have determined the focus for your photo, youll need to set up the alignment. If the subjects are not touching in the photo the alignment of the shot is not as critical as it is when the subjects appear to touch. If you are setting up a photo where the subjects appear to touch, such as one person appearing to stand in another persons hand, you may need a tripod to get the stability you ...
I lived totally without cents since Autumn of 2000 (except for a couple months in 2001) until the Spring of 2016, when I started caring for my aging parents, managing their finances. For 15 years I didnt use or accept money or conscious barter - nor did I take food stamps or other government dole. My philosophy has been to use only what is freely given or discarded and what is already present and already running (whether or not I existed). I dont see money as evil or good: how can illusion be evil or good? But I dont see heroin or meth as evil or good, either. Which is more addictive and debilitating, money or meth? Attachment to illusion makes you illusion, makes you not real. Attachment to illusion is called idolatry, called addiction. I simply got tired of acknowledging as real this most common world-wide belief called money! I simply got tired of being unreal. Money is one of those intriguing things that seems real and functional because 2 or more people believe it is real & functional ...
Title: Illusions of Security. Co-written by LM, Dimphy, and Barb. Disclaimer: Hunter and McCall, et al do not belong to us, but since SJC hasnt given them anything to do, weve taken it upon ourselves to keep them busy.. Summary: He knows where they live. He knows how to kill. He has the manpower and he wants justice. Can Hunter and McCall save themselves from his evil scheme to impose Final Judgment?. Chapter 1. Thursday On Thursday afternoon, Hunter glanced over at his partner as she rummaged through files on her desk. He couldnt help himself with daydreaming about what shed be wearing Saturday night. She told him itd be something sexy, and left it at that; but he couldnt leave it alone.. "So, tell me. Is this dress of yours short; above the knee, perhaps?" He looked through a folder, as if only half interested in her answer, when she knew he was dying to know the truth.. McCall was willing to play his game. "Im not saying specifically. But to give you more ideas to roll around in your ...
One of the truest indications of a good record is when it sounds like something is starting to go wrong with the car while listening to it. The latest Silverman sounds at turns like the breaks are going, the belts are slipping, the timing needs adjusting, the drive shaft has a shot bearing and the clutch is failing. Perhaps this is the very nature of illusion bespoke in the title. NOI is a much more amorphous excursion than some of Silvermans previous slow trance explorations, though it does display his trademark fondness for going to very quiet places. Through a polar silence comes a ringing metallic that fades off into contrapuntal, subsonic drones. A brief essay of percussives trails back into the liquid void. The album is a series of such interlocked and subtle sonic, largely non-melodic shape shifts whose darkness is not so much morose as it is simply casting shadows of and off the unknown. Silverman has carved an abstract chasm of distant, organic electronics that is best first opened ...

A temporal illusion in which an effect is perceived after its cause reveals details of how visual events enter conscious awareness
This, I think, overestimates the frequency of the error. A quick Google search for "racial epithet," for instance, yields 154,000 hits; "racial epitaph" yields 14,600, some of which are references to the error. Searches Ive done with other likely adjectives gave me similar results. Maybe matters are different in speech than even in the informal writing present on the Internet, but I know of no evidence of that.. Part of the reason for such illusions, I suspect, is that erroneous usages are jarring and therefore noticeable; we therefore remember them more than we remember the correct usages. In any event, it seems that in this instance, the "epithet" / "epitaph" distinction is, at least at this point, pretty strongly maintained.. ...

To test whether this illusion applied to income, Krueger, Kahneman and their colleagues studied the responses given by the women in the 2004 DRM survey. After they were asked to report the percentage of time they spent in a bad mood the previous day, they were asked to predict how much time people with certain income levels spend in a bad mood. Survey respondents expected women who earned less than $20,000 a year to spend 32 percent more of their time in a bad mood than they expected people who earned more than $100,000 a year to spend in a bad mood. In actuality, respondents who earned less than $20,000 a year reported spending only 12 percent more of their time in a bad mood than those who earned more than $100,000. So the effect of income on mood was vastly exaggerated.. To provide further evidence on the role that income plays in peoples lives, the researchers conducted an additional DRM survey of 810 women in Ohio in May 2005. In this survey, respondents reported their experiences from ...
Secular Illusions by Rebecca Bynum (July 2007) In a recent episode of The Sopranos, a suicidal and despairing child begs of his parents, ?What?s the point?? ?Point o? what?? came the reply. And so it is in our modern culture: the meaning of life is so far buried beneath the generalized pursuit of material well-being, that the ?point of it all? is no longer seriously considered by the average person. Those who think along these lines are likely judged mentally disturbed and are often medicated for depression as was the boy in the television series. ?Don?t think those thoughts, take this medication and then you?ll feel better,? seems to be the most common response to modern existential angst.
